Smart Growth is Sustainable Growth
We need growth that respects our rich history and saves historical landmarks as well as our older neighborhoods. Sustainable growth gives Round Rock a sense of place that attracts visitors and new residents, fosters pride in our hometown, and improves our quality of life.
Sustainable growth better preserves our parks and wildspace for those who play on a sports team and those who do not. There should be fields for free play and more trails for walking, running, and cycling. In addition, we must ensure an ample, sustainable, and clean water supply.
Our downtown should consist of a diverse mixture of venues that make Round Rock a better, safer, and more enjoyable place to live. We should welcome and incentivize small, locally owned businesses and restaurants that contribute to our economy, our uniqueness, and provide an attractive mix for residents and visitors. In addition, we should build a new performing arts space for our Round Rock Symphony, Choir, and community groups as well as for world-class entertainers and shows.
